Expanding Horizons, Enhancing Perceptions
Children capture and process information with their intelligences and create connections about themselves and the world. At SuperGenius, we provide the environment and create experiences that enable the SuperGenius to construct a holistic understanding of themselves, the people, and the world.
Inspiring the SuperGenius
Children are born with unlimited potential and gifts. Every child is unique and there are multiple ways that the SuperGenius can make sense of the world and realise their potential to be responsible global citizens.
A Preschool inspired by SG
SuperGenius is inspired by Singapore. The founders wanted to start a preschool with a curriculum that is designed and tailored for the children in SG, and possibly children around the world.
In 2015, Stalford Learning Centre had launched a holiday enrichment programme for preschoolers titled “The SuperGenius” that encompasses phonics, mathematics, and science experimentation. The success of the holiday enrichment programme kick-started a conversation amongst the Maestros, and intrigued us to further explore the definition of a “SuperGenius”, and create a preschool that we would want to send our children to learn how to be a SuperGenius.
Ruby, co-founder of Stalford Education Group, aspires to develop a preschool education curriculum that would distinctly position Singapore as a leader in preschool education on the world stage. Ruby believes that creativity and innovation, underpinned by values of honesty and resilience, are key ingredients to succeed and contribute to society.
Evolving from an academically-driven holiday enrichment programme, the Maestros referenced proven early childhood theories and methodologies and developed a SuperGenius Programme for preschoolers that would nurture learning attributes and build character attributes; attributes that define the SuperGenius. The four learning attributes of agile, joyful, inquisitive, and reflective, and the four character attributes of honest, resilient, caring, and grateful forms the SuperGenius Profile. A SuperGenius is thus defined by these eight profile attributes.
The Maestros firmly believe that Every Child is a SuperGenius, and a trans-domain Reggio-inspired programme that is contextualised for Singapore is the most suitable approach to Inspire the SuperGenius. The SuperGenius Programme comprises six trans-domain Programme Areas that includes SuperGenius Moves, Languages & Theatre, ArtScience, Well-being, Environmental Sustainability and Emergent Experiences. The programme aims to nurture the SuperGenius attributes and inspire children to realise their potential and be responsible global citizens.
The SuperGenius Preschool is an amalgamation of the Maestros’ vision and extensive research on the inquiry-based approach and facilitation methods adapted to suit Singapore’s context. We seek to provide the right Learning Environment and education resources to develop every child to be the best version of themselves. Together with parents and other stakeholders, we look forward to creating meaningful and enriching learning experiences for our SuperGenius, Expanding their Horizons and Enhancing their Perceptions, and prepare the SuperGenius for life beyond the foundation years.
The SuperGenius logo draws inspiration from Singapore flag and uses Pantone Red 032 for the font colour. The arches symbolise the Reggio-inspired approach that SuperGenius Preschool adopts, as Reggio Emilia is a city in Italy and arches are often found in Italian and Roman architecture.
The arches symbolise passage and transformation. Yellow colour represents the Earth and green colour represents the Environment.
The SuperGenius Preschool’s environment is the Third Teacher; the SuperGenius’ experiences are intimately connected to Earth and its Environment. The SuperGenius enters the Preschool through the yellow arch, experiences the SuperGenius Programme, develops the eight SuperGenius attributes, and steps up to meet life’s challenges through the green arch.
The red mascot figure depicts the joyful bounce in every step that the SuperGenius takes through the Learning Stages.
The green strokes represent the six SuperGenius Programme Areas: Languages & Theatre, SuperGenius Moves, ArtScience, Well-being, Environmental Sustainability and Emergent Experiences. The Programme is specially tailored for the SuperGenius who learns joyfully and experiences the sparkles of ‘aha 💡’ moments at SuperGenius Preschool.
